West Ocean City's Shrimp Boat gets beer and wine license

May 24, 2012|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

The weekend is so close you can taste it.

If you're headed east to the Atlantic, take a look at our guide to 100 Best Beach Eats, which covers Ocean City, West Ocean City and Delaware towns stretching from Fenwick Island to Lewes.

It might be hard to get to on a busy weekend, when the Ocean Gateway (Route 50) is bumper to bumper, but sometime this summer make sure you stop by the Shrimp Boat on Stephen Decatur Highway. This 23-year-old roadside shack is the real deal, where the locals have always come to buy fresh seafood and steamed-while-you-wait shrimp. Over the past few years, the shack has been stepping it up, adding a kitchen and seating.

And, now, the Shrimp Boat has a license to sell beer and wine. They've also got a new screened-in seating area.

So, maybe not this weekend, but sometime this summer, go to the Shrimp Boat.
